This programme includes Times Middle East correspondent Mike Theodoulou live from Nicosia talking about Iran and Israeli threats to bomb them, plus, of course, European football. And with love in the air in this season of spring fever we also talk about why car washes are so damned horny; the early sexual life of Paddy Ashdown; the Hillary Clinton in sex phone line scandal shock; the Castaway Canine - a soggy dog story from down under; how sheepdogs might be banned under new PC restrictions; a Fish called Colin and other tales from the waterfront. Plus And Easter news - how Britain has become a nation of rabbit torturers and smacking your siblings - we discuss family fights. Plus another extract from Cough your Way to Fitness.
